Great to hear from John, G4BAO today regarding the new beacon which is planned for installation in Northern Ireland to facilitate research into the transatlantic path on 144MHz.
John says, 'Over in the US, Brian, WA1ZMS, is making the final preparations to ship the beacon transmitter over to Northern Ireland.
Thanks to the kind donation of antenna parts and clamps from G4CQM at Powabeam Antennas, beacon keeper, Gordon GI6ATZ, is in the process of building the antenna system for the beacon, and installing the emergency shutdown system.
We are aiming to have the beacon up and running before the year end.'
This sounds a great beacon and we look forward to some interesting results!
